The BURRITOS are not like any other burritos. They look like they can feed about 4 people! Best burritos in Highland Park!

This restaurant has a great tradition of providing great service, really good food, and excellent margaritas.

It is definitely family friendly and an important gathering spot for community folks.

I have been coming here for 10 years now. I try to make it in at least once a month.\r
This place was recently redecorated (not that it needed it). It was closed for a couple of months\r

El Arco Iris has been my favorite Mexican restaurant in LA ever since my first visit in 1996. Favorites include chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, chile verde and any of the fajita plates, however first timers have to try the Jesse extra

Pros: Delicious and Affordable Authentic Mexican Food, Cool Bar

My family has been going here for over 20yrs and it has ruined me for all other Mexican food. My biggest problem when coming here is deciding what to eat because it is all amazing. I usually end up ordering a Jesse's extra special

The food is delicious, the prices are great, and the service is warm and friendly. I always take friends from out of town here, especially if they live somewhere where they can't get good, authentic Mexican food.

Pros: Inexpensive, Flat screen TVS

The food id great. Probably the best bean and cheese burritos made. Not the cleanest place (not that dirty either), but the food is delicioso. Everytime I go, I also order the strawberry soda. Their carnitas is really good as well. And try the greenchili... a little on the hot side, but very flavorful.
